Technical Absorbents (TAL), global supplier of Super Absorbent Fibre (SAF), successfully participated in the recently held Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture (GFIA) conference and exhibition, the world’s award-winning sustainable agriculture event, held in Abu Dhabi, from March 9 to 10, 2015.
TAL presented its unique SAF technology at the agricultural expo. The SAF technology creates new possibilities for the development of fabrics that can be used for short and long-term agricultural and horticultural solutions, from hanging basket liners to commercial scale projects, even in areas of low water availability, TAL said in a statement.
Such technical fabrics are designed to achieve highly controlled delivery of water and nutrients to root systems, while significantly reducing evaporative loss and water seepage. With its hot and dry climate, the Middle East is an area with huge potential for such a technology.
Technical Absorbents commercial manager Stuart Coomber said, “We have developed and tested a strong portfolio of products for the Middle East market. From liner fabrics for baskets to durable fabrics that can be buried below the grounds surface, our super absorbent technology offers a solution for anyone looking to reduce water usage or have a need to ensure plants don’t dehydrate during transportation. We can supply our technology as a fibre or as a finished fabric.”
GFIA is the most influential event for sustainable agriculture movement, and has created a platform ideally suited to present the latest technologies and services. With sustainability and innovation at its core, GFIA brings together an unparalleled group of potential partners, buyers, resellers, integrators, investors, and collaborators. (GK)
